With the government’s emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (or STEAM) subjects, keeping up with the demands of the curriculum can seem like a tall order. The unfortunate truth is that EdTech can be expensive. The Sutton Trust, a charity set up to address educational disadvantages, found that 32% of primary school leaders have had to cut back on IT equipment this year, due to a lack of funds. Secondary schools weren’t far behind, with 20% of headteachers having to slash their IT budgets.

In this blog, we’ll explain how our flexible leases can help you spread the cost of all kinds of EdTech equipment, from iPads and interactive screens to virtual reality headsets.
